The average cost of a facelift in Houston can be between $7,000 and $25,000, depending on the type of facelift that is being performed and whether the procedure is being performed on an inpatient or outpatient basis. There’s a lot of different things that can go into the cost of a facelift. Don’t skimp when it comes to these decisions because it’s your face and it’s very important to explore all your options, such as whether to have a full facelift or a mini facelift. You’ll want to research your surgeon’s expertise, check out before and after photos, and get tested to make sure you’re okay with general anesthesia or whether your procedure can be done under local or local with IV sedation.Close Up of Dr. Sturm Sitting in the Lobby

What is the average age for a facelift? 

The average age for a facelift  is usually between 50 to 60 years of age, but it really depends on your aging process. I’ve seen people in their 40s who have lost a significant amount of weight, where the only way to lift that skin is a facelift. I’ve also seen people in their 80s  who want to address their sagging skin and are healthy enough to go under anesthesia. The age range is vast, but it usually starts at about 40 years of age, with the peak in the 50s and 60s.

Is 60 too old for a facelift? 

No, 60 is the age where I see the most patients.This is usually the time when you’re seeing changes in the mirror that don’t match how you feel on the inside. Most people want to look as good as they feel. If you’re healthy and don’t have an issue with anesthesia, you’re a great candidate at any age.

Is a facelift worth it? 

A facelift is definitely worth it if you have sagging skin that is causing you to lose self confidence or appear older than you feel. My patients tell me it’s the best thing that they’ve done for themselves. Confidence is an important quality. When you have your confidence, everything falls into place, such as relationships, social life, and work. It’s like renovating your house. You start with your kitchen, and then you start looking at your bathroom and your living room. This is how it works with a facelift. You start with your face and then you might improve your health and other areas of your life because you feel so good.
